No. Apart from being a game that uses pieces that move around on the same board, they are completely different. They have different pieces. The pieces in checkers are all the same, but there are different types of pieces in Chess. They move different ways. There are more pieces in chess. The objective of the game is different. Chess is a far more complicated game. So in many ways they are very different games.
